PPD: learning how to apply theory
Chemical Masters have a lot of theoretical knowledge. But putting theory into practice to solve real industrial problems is a different matter. Most Chemical Masters find this very difficult. It’s true that translating knowledge into practical, operational tools is no easy task. It takes time, training and experience. The multidisciplinary PPD programme focuses specifically on these three aspects in training you as a creative technological designer. After this two-year programme,
you’ll be able to make a ‘flying start’, whether in a manufacturing company or with a contractor. At least, that’s what most of our graduates do.
During the PPD programme you will be exposed to, and actively involved in applying, technologies to an extent that would never be possible if you were only working in industry. To gain the same experience would take, if possible at all, many more years in industry. The PPD programme is unique: dedicated courses, industrial assignments, industrial lecturers and management team members who themselves are active in the process industry.
